A magisterial biblical theology.... A deep, detailed and consistent theological vision... Hahn's skill in assembling disparate canonical and historical-critical elements... alone warrants acclamation. --A.K.M. Adam (Catholic Biblical Quarterly)
The breadth and depth of this book are extraordinary. Hahn has a remarkable ability to integrate exegetical insights into an overarching theological synthesis. It is difficult to overestimate its explanatory power.
--Brant Pitre (Nova et Vetera)
This masterly inductive exploration of the covenant offers a sure-footed analysis of Scripture. Its rigor is matched by a willingness to take the theological exegesis of the NT seriously. --Kent E. Brower, Journal for the Study of the New Testament
A robust constructive proposal for understanding the fundamental structure of Scripture.... Hahn has done his homework.... This book should be read by biblical scholars and theologians alike. --Leroy Huizenga, Bullein for Biblical Research
Professor Hahn pays close attention to critical scholarship and sees historical criticism and canonical criticism as complementary..... A wide-ranging and stimulating work. --John Goldingay, Journal of Theological Studies
From the Back Cover
"This book is the fruit of an immense amount of research in the contemporary study of the divine covenants in Scripture. No one who takes up the challenge of reading it, whether scholar or not, will come away without being more astute in matters human and divine. The thesis of the book is masterly in its basic insight: life lived under the biblical covenant cannot be separated from life lived in relationships shaped by family ties and terms. It is the family which is central to the biblical view of life for the simple reason that the family is central to life itself."

That is not to say that I always agreed with Hahn; there were some areas where I think he might have approached the text differently. In my opinion, good scholarly study of the Bible should challenge your thinking so that you can examine the Scriptures for yourself. I consistently asked myself, "So why was Leviticus written?" or "What was really happening at Sinai?" or "Why did Moses change his approach at Moab?" It is the pursuit of these and many other questions that Hahn provided a great deal of insight, to which I contribute my own theological understanding. That is the sign of excellent Biblical scholarship.
As a result of this book, I have begun my own independent study of the Pentateuch. I want to see the whole picture for myself, without the lens of Dr. Hahn. I have this book to credit for leading me to begin that in-depth analysis.
Tom Clarke, author of Joshua's Spiritual Warfare: Understanding the Chiasms of Joshua
While the material is deep, it can be understood by most Bible students and will add greatly to their understanding. Even a one time through read would create a depth of understanding of God's love and His Covenants with His people that will open up a greater and deeper understanding of the Scriptures. An in-depth study, by a serious student will greatly bless and enhance the study.
Be prepared to have a new awareness and a new openness to Covenant Theology.
